So I got this strange mail just recently that is apparently about some Internet marketing conference that is happening around here in BC which is suppose to teach people how to make money with companies like eBay and Google.
Somehow, I have been chosen to attend this event and just for attending I would receive a free meal and a business organizer valued at $120. So to attend you would have to RSVP by phone. I thought the funny thing about this was that for a conference that is suppose to deal with Internet technology and how to make money with it, youâ€™d think the company would at least have a web site.
The thing about this that is a little troublesome is how the letter looks pretty professional and appealing with logos representing big Internet companies. I can easily see an average Joe thinking how this will be an opportunity of a lifetime and that they have nothing to lose since it is free. So to help, I have scanned the documents to help people recognize what this thing looks like along with a text transcript incase people can’t read it(Quickly used an OCR scanning software for the text).

Conferences are available through this invitation only. Limit one guest per reservation. Call for remaining availability.

Your business organizer will be available at the event or may be mailed to you after the event.
Iâ€™ve personally never been to one of these and hopefully never will, but if it is anything like those other free conferences on how to make money, Iâ€™m willing to bet that while youâ€™re there the whole purpose will be to sell you thousands of dollars worth of stuff as it is their way of leading you to financial freedom. So is it fair for me to be critical about this since I never went to it before? Well, just to confirm my suspicions, in the envelope was also this personal message card from who is apparently the Vice President of this company with the name â€œC. Rex Sandersonâ€.
I want you to know how important I believe our FREE conference may be to you.
If you’re not where you need to be financially, or if you’re just spending too much time at work away from your family, I urge you to attend our FREE Internet Marketing Conference to witness what others have done to re-claim their financial and personal lives.
